Skinny Jeans Could Cause Twisted Testicles, Doctors
TV doctor Hilary Jones is working with TENA Men to reveal the dangers of tight trousers on the male reproductive system.
Jones said: ”I have seen several cases of men who have twisted their testicles due to wearing jeans that are far too tight. Please don’t put style before health.”
Tight trousers can constrict the spermatic cord leading to testicular torsion which cuts off the blood supply. This situation requires urgent surgery to prevent the testicle from turning gangrenous.
The study of 2,000 British men revealed one in ten have had unpleasant side-effects from their tight trousers.
Conducted by TENA Men, the leading male bladder weakness brand, the survey also showed that one in seven British men regularly wear skinny jeans.
